Cyber Tuesday Sale at Prairie Sunshine Soaps!

Hi, folks!

It looks like Cyber Monday is winding down just in time for Cyber Tuesday!  Yes, I made up this sale at our Prairie Sunshine Soaps shop on Etsy because I was too busy getting back into the swing of teaching today to pay attention to Cyber Monday.  But never let it be known that this woman's procrastination might let you down.

You can save 15% on your entire order by using coupon code CYBERTUESDAY now through  December 3, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. CST.  Of course, I am still offering free shipping on a minimum purchase of $15.00 or more through December 21 by using coupon code FALLFREESHIP.  I am not sure if you can use both codes at the same time but you might as well give it a try.

For your perusal, here are a few of the soaps in our shop:

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, lavender and fir needle soap, and Fifty Shades of Jamie Dornan

The kids and I usually put up the Christmas tree on the day after Thanksgiving.  We were too busy getting ready for Chris' birthday parties, which were Friday evening and Saturday all day.  So today was our day.   Unfortunately, at least 1/3 of our tree's pre-lit branches did not illuminate, and this tree is only a year old.  Bummer.  So I had to venture off to the store to find some lights (and behold, Jo-Ann had a 60% off coupon as well!) and we finally got down to decorating the old Tannenbaum.

Here is a before picture:

And a few after pictures:

I love these kids!

I made some new soap this afternoon as well:
It's organic lavender and fir needle soap made with shea butter and avocado oil.  I can't wait to use this!  It should be ready around December 29.  

And lastly, I found out that Fifty Shades of Grey has begun filming in Vancouver!  Here is a pic from fiftyshadesofgreyfans Tumblr page:

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey
I was disappointed that Charlie Hunnam won't be in the movie, but I do love the choice of Jamie Dornan.  Who can resist a dreamy Irishman?  Oh, and the rest of the cast looks pretty good too.  I am not one of those people who just HAS to have certain actors in certain roles.  I mean really, I'm not a casting agent nor a director so who am I to say who should play a particular part?  I do need to get back to work on my novel so I can do what E L James is doing, hobnobbing with dashing stars, galivanting around Seattle and Vancouver, and enjoying life as a bestselling author.  Of course, my dashing hottie will be Michael Fassbender!  LOL!

Now it's the end of the long Thanksgiving weekend. Only three more weeks until winter break.  I can't wait!
